3rd new ride

I doubt a 3rd new ride would be possible. I think that would be a bit over the top.


But then i bet most people wouldnt say it was too over the top if Thorpe did it...

I think if the 2003 woodie had been built it would have created a lot of noise throughout much of the gardens, Rita can already be heard and it does spoil the atmosphere slightly. I know noise isn't great for locals, but dont you just LOVE the roar of Nemesis across the valley when walking up to x-...

Is it me or is the new land going to be in form of islands ?


That would be really great if that happened! Isnt Island Of Adventures like that? Or is it another theme park in Florida? But it would sure make thorpe park seem more special.

Can you not see in the picture i posted above how the inside wheels have all the mechanisms to rotate the cars! Why would any normal coaster train need all that excess bulk on its wheels!

You can see it here. Although the wheels are bigger on the inside rails, they also have all the mechanisms there that spin the cars.

Environmentally fitting in its surroundings - yes! Environmentally friendly - no not really, not when rediculous amounts of trees have to be cut down for it. Phil :) I think the original Woodie plans called for 142 trees to be removed of which the vast majority were already diseased and in need of ...

I dont think anything made of Steel would look right in the Valley! lol I always get these strange feelings, which i dont like, about building attractions in wooded areas such as the Valley. I wasn't much for that Coaster they 'apparently' planned in Gloomy Wood! I like the idea of a woodie though,...

/ Totally agree with you. An alton golf course would be nice. Maybe a little night walk like at UNIVERSAL florida. With a few shops, and food outlets etc. Plus bars. Then they can call themselves a resort. Also maybe a casino would be nice. :D Also a golf course would probably stop these pay per go...

Why are you just digging up old, dead topics to post in?! Why cant you just post in alive topics that are interesting instead of posting for the sake of it! Plus, im sure the Ropers arnt the only people annoyed at the noise levels. and its boring to hear you going on about them in every post you do!...
